2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a pint glass. Two finger of white head on top of transparent golden ale. The head was solid. Great lacing.
Faint smell of lemon.
Mild taste of bitterness, faint malt sweetness.
Soft texture, moderate carbonation, light to medium body.
It looked really great. For a pale ale it’s just too mild all around. It’s a step about the standard BMC lagers but as an ale it should have a bit more to it.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick well retained off white head, with some lacing, over a clear, medium amber (SRM 13) body.......nose is light cereal, minimal hops, no esters, balance to the hops......taste is light cereal, lighter hops, no character....mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This bottle, is NOT an APA, it more of an colored and aroma and flavor lacking Pale Lager except for the color. It needs a total rework of the recipe. There are NO American hops in either aroma or flavors, and the malts are quite hidden. The yeast did not do much either. BJCP 4/3/7/3/5

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Genuinely very bad beer, vegetal and doesn’t really resemble an IPA in basically any way. God no, not again.

"looks like the ipa (light)...still off, like several of their beers. Contaminated? Unlikely as this covered 7 different beer styles. nothing special in any way, not totally offensive."

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- pours a filtered, crystal clear copper with one finger of off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin skin. Weak lacing. S- sweet malts and pine resin at first. Some soap, citrus and bread. Maltiness disappears it warms and becomes more vegetal. M- weak and thin palate with a slight tackiness. Light body as well with faint carb. T- light citrus and hoppy grapefruit up front. Some standard straw, and spice. Metallic and watery in the middle. Ending is quick watery grapefruit and some straw. Fairly simple without much flair. But enjoyable.
